No better way to say bee mine than with stinging insects. These cards focus more on the sweet honey, and are available for stitching up now!
I made some burritos for our freezer, and now I feel like the most prepared person in the world. All ready for lunches. Just add some avocado.
Underneath that foil (or in that plastic bag after I ran out of foil), is:
- A burrito sized tortilla
- Refried beans
- Some cheese
- Some of that frozen southwestern corn with the pepper and onion bits in it
- And some salsa mixed with plain greek yogurt
So now you can feel like the most lunch-ready person in the world too! Does anyone know if lettuce freezes well?
I made this Mario blanket for my brother for Christmas. Since Mario is already made out of pixels, it is made out of tiny granny squares sewn together. It took some time and lots of counting, but I think everyone was impressed with the final result.
(Also, its pretty big and this isn’t my best photography work.)
I like to have multiple projects going on. If I’m making card kits all day, I need to take a sewing break. If I’m making a quilt, I need to take some drawing breaks. This also usually results in separate messes all over the room, but you can’t win em all.
My newest obsession is hat making. I made a hat, took it apart, and repeated that 4 times before I found a pattern I actually liked. I made a big pom pom for my hat, and Jon gets the green one, which I will gladly pom pom with his approval.
Hopefully it will stay cooler a little bit longer so we can take a cute picture together in our matching hats!
So yesterday was my birthday, and we took a field trip to get some yarn. While we were in the store, we browsed some magazines, and look what we found.
Something I made is in a real life magazine! It is the winter Do It Yourself magazine from Better Homes and Gardens. We only bought 2, so there should be plenty left for you. And you can find my claim to fame here!
I am generally a firm believer that each holiday has its time. This is probably because I have a November birthday. I like to celebrate my birthday, then Thanksgiving, and then it can be Christmas music time. BUT it is time to start thinking about any gifts you need to make. If you start those after Thanksgiving, you may not finish in time. Plus, working on gifts and crafts in these early evenings is sort of what fall is all about, right?
So by that logic, now is the time to begin working on these cards! I am really happy with these classic redwork designs. Those deer cards are selling like gingerbread cookies at Christmas, or hotcakes, whichever you prefer. Find them in the shop now.
